eBay app arrives on BlackBerrys

BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) has announced the arrival of the first eBay app for its range of smartphones, opening up a world of online auctioning for users.

eBay is still the largest online auction site in the world and the BlackBerry app gives users all the standard features of the full service.

This includes the ability to scour the listings for lots, bid on and observe items that are up for offer and even refresh their own listed items if they have not sold within the allotted time period.

The eBay app makes use of the BlackBerry's calendar and organiser functions to keep consumers up-to-date with any items they are selling or buying, with automatic notifications will be pushed straight to their smartphones.

Steve Yankovich of RIM said: "When developing any mobile application, we take into account the unique features and advantages of the device to better meet our customers' needs.

"With BlackBerry's Push Service and multi-tasking technology, eBay buyers and sellers are able to stay up-to-date on great deals and sales."

Any BlackBerry user running version 4.5 of the RIM operating system or higher can download the eBay app now from the BlackBerry App World free of charge.
